Trivia:

C. Thomas Howell was somehow able to obtain the rights to the Blade Runner name by exploiting an obscure flaw in the US Patent and Trademark Office system. Four days later, Warner Brothers was notified of the rights transfer, but by that time C. Thomas Howell had already written, filmed, edited, and began distributing his film through Asylum Productions.

C. Thomas Howell originally claimed "Phillip K. Dick personally sat down and watched this movie with me and he said he loved it and it was the best adaptation of any of his material ever." When informed Dick died in 1982, C. Thomas Howell replied, "yes I know... my film is that good." Then he casually opened up a phone book and pointed to all the "Dick, Phillip" entries and commented, "just saying, that's all."

Rutger Hauer was given the role of Cy Borg after Lance Hendrickson, Udo Kier, and Corben Bernsen declined.

Instead of shouting "cut" at the end of a take, C. Thomas Howell screams "MAKE MOVIE STOP NOW!!!"

Quotes:

[Deckard 2.0 enters the VR sim running CyberCop v3.2]
Cybercop Chief Officer Binary Brooks: Deckard 2.0... we need you to come out of retirement... again.
Deckard 2.0: I already told you, Binary. I'm retired.
Cybercop Chief Officer Binary Brooks: Well now you're untired. We've got a problem only you can solve.
Deckard 2.0: The problem of how you got so fat eating holo-pork, Officer Fuckhead?
Cybercop Chief Officer Binary Brooks: Deckard 2.0, you're an asshole... but that's why I like you.

Cy Borg: This virtual reality you live in... I live in... we all live in... it has virtually grown into... its own reality.
Eternity Squared: Those humans live their entire lives in computers... yet they think they are alive. How... ironic.
Cy Borg: Yes, and soon the hunter... will become the hunted.
[Cy Borg opens the hallway door and climbs into the internet's mainframe data hole]

Deckard 2.0: I'm pretty sure you're a robot.
Sheila Saint Claire: I'm pretty sure I'm not.
Deckard 2.0: Well then how about you let me give you the Mangrove Robot Test and we can see how real you are?
Sheila Saint Claire: I am prepared for your tests.
[Deckard 2.0 gives her the test]
Sheila Saint Claire: [disappointed] I guess I am a robot after all.

Cy Borg: I can snap your spine like a pretzel under a wheelbarrow! Tell me who coded the emotion upgrade chip!
Grizzly: I don't know, man! I just work here in the cyberfactory, I don't know what goes on upstairs!
Cy Borg: Then perhaps I should pay the fine gentlemen upstairs a little visit. Now... give me your pants.

Cy Borg: [on fire] My RAM... it feels like it's going to explode!
Deckard 2.0: That's your CPU cycle eating itself alive. You are dining on your own virtual brains, Cy.
Cy Borg: No!!! This can't be!
Deckard 2.0: You are wrong, this CAN be and it IS be. Right here, right now, Cy. Eternity Squared double-crossed you in the Alpha Zone, and you didn't even know it. Your flaws as a robot made you vulnerable, and your lack of emotions prevented you from understanding the true meaning of love. Now your atoms will be exploded in a cloud of ones and zeroes. Welcome to the recycling bin, Cy.
Cy Borg: No!!! This can't be!
[his atoms explode and numbers fly everywhere]

Gaff: It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?
Deckard 2.0: [voiceover] It was then I learned I had been a Replicoid the entire time. I couldn't believe it! I thought I was a human being... but I was wrong... dead wrong.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
